Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Kit

The Qualcomm® Flight Pro Development Kit targets the drone and robotics development community and is based on the powerful Snapdragon 820, with its high-end imaging and signal processing capabilities. The new Qualcomm® Flight Pro board is smaller than a credit card (75x36mm) and brings together photography, video, navigation, and communication technologies on a single board.

The Flight Pro Kit includes the Flight Pro Development Board, a 5V DC power supply and power cord, serial console adapter, power adapter board, and a USB to serial cable. The Flight Pro Kit does not include the airframe, motor controller, motors, propellers, or radio control receiver. If you intend to use this kit as a starting point for building a flyable drone you will need to purchase additional hardware components from other vendors and assemble it yourself.
